SIMCITY FILES ON YOUR HARD DRIVE
• Finding your file
• Transferring to another computer
• Submitting to the Team Center
This is basically the same process you use to submit your city files to the Team Center. See information
at the end of this document and “Saving and Submitting Your City” instructions on the Future City
resources page: http://futurecity.org/all-resources.
FINDING YOUR FILE:
Locate the Game folder on your hard drive
PC: Documents\SimCity\Games\
Mac: Documents/SimCityMedia/Games
Note: this folder will only exist if you have
been playing SimCity in Offline (SinglePlayer) mode.
Open the Game folder and you should see a
cryptically named alphanumeric folder.
Origin creates the unique alphanumeric
folder to store offline games. Each Origin ID
will have its own unique folder. In the
example on the left, the user has 3 Origin
IDs, and therefore, 3 alphanumeric folders.
Open the alphanumeric folder and you will
find simple numbered folders.
These numbered folders are each Game (or
Region) played with that Origin ID.
This is the SimCity Games page
corresponding to the 5 numbered files
above. Each Game on this page is one of the
numbered folders.
You can use the date/time stamp (above) to
determine which folder goes with which
game.
Or, (to make the file easy to identify) begin
to play the game you are interested in
submitting or transferring. Do a “Save As”
and give it a new name. The folder with this
new game will be the one with the most
recent time-stamp (and probably the highest
number-name).
TRANSFERRING CITY FILES TO ANOTHER COMPUTER
Copy or move the numbered folder to a
flashdrive for transfer to another computer
ON THE DESTINATION COMPUTER
Locate the Games folder – same process as
above.
Open the Games folder to see the cryptically
named alphanumeric folder.
Open the alphanumeric folder to find the
numbered folders.
Copy or move the numbered folder from the
flashdrive to the computer (inside the cryptic
alphanumeric folder with all the other
numbered folders).
NOTE 1: if the file on the flashdrive has the
same name as one of the existing numbered
folders, you will need to change its name.
The name must be an integer-number, but it
doesn’t necessarily have to be the next
consecutive number
NOTE 2: SimCity should not be running
when you perform the transfer.
To play the new game:
1. Log into Origin with your usual
password.
2. Start SimCity.
3. Select “Single-Player” mode
4. Select “Play”
5. You should see the new
game/region(s) on the Games page.
SUBMITTING CITY FILES TO THE TEAM CENTER
Zip or compress the folder you want to
submit.
On PC – create a new folder: a zip folder
and copy or move the numbered folder into
it.
Submitting to the Team Center – this zip file
is the one you will upload to the Team
Center.
NOTE 1: You might want to put this file
someplace where it will be easy for you to
find (on desktop, for example).
NOTE 2: If you are a teacher submitting
several files, you might also want to rename
the zip file with the team name, so you can
easily tell one from another.
Log in to the Team Center.
Upload file – use the “Browse” or “Choose
File” button to locate the zip file.
You will also need to enter some information
about your city:
• City name (should = team name)
• Game or Region name
• Last date played
• Population
